GENEIIAL INFORMATIO N 

The j)rinc;ipal feature of this shelter is a sturdy wood overhead canopy which 
serves as a part oi a pre— buiit snack bar in a basement recreation room. 
Consisting of three units hinged to the back wall, the canopy can be lowered 
to rest on the snack bar in an emergency. 

In basements where the level of the outside ground is above the top of the 
canopy, adequate shelter from fallout radiation is provided for 5 people 
when the canopy is filled with 8" solid concrete block or brick. 

The snack bar should not take more than 5 man -days to construct,
